Data science is central to a growing number of data-intensive business models. The field sits at the intersection of computer science, statistics, and business-domain knowledge. Most data scientists, however, are focused on their technology: the algorithm. Their focus on algorithmic design, deployment, and improvement often leads to incremental gains, but not new business solutions.
We will explore how to harness the power of data science to unleash breakthrough innovation. First, what types of innovations and new strategies are possible? And, second, what changes in culture—on both sides—are needed to foster effective collaboration between managers and their data scientists?
